I’m very sad that the NBA owners have chosen to cancel the first two weeks of the season. I blame the owners and David Stern. Will Leitch sums it up quite nicely. Here’s a portion, the rest is well worth the read.
So here’s what the owners are saying to the players: “We’ve made so many poor spending choices lately that we’ve lost money, even without having to pay for our own facilities and even as the NBA has grown more popular. And we’d like you to give up enough money to make it almost a certainty that we never lose money again, even if we make all these same mistakes for a second time and the economy never improves.”
